Nicole Mesa, ACSW

Associate Clinical Social Worker

“Hello, my name is Nicole and I am happy to join you on your therapeutic journey!
Every person has a different reason for coming to therapy. Often, we make the choice when we’ve reached a point where life has become unbearable, we no longer understand ourselves or those around us, we’ve lost sight of what’s important to us, and we feel isolated, alone, and hopeless. My goal is to honor each individual and their reasons for coming to therapy, and to provide them with a place to rediscover themselves and the things that bring their life meaning.
